America is an exceptional America is an exceptional nation founded on three principles: equality, freedom and opportunity. But today our founding principles are under attack from Seattle and Portland to Washington and New York. Democrat run cities across the country are being overrun by violent mobs. The violence is ramp, it theres looting, chaos, destruction and murder. People that can afford to flee have fled, but the people that cant good hard working Americans are left to fend for themselves: Brian Well, South Dakota, Governor Kristi Noem. In opening speech of night three of the Dnc, you would think thats beyond dispute, because we are up to almost ninety days of unrest in Portland and Seattle gave us the chop zone but believe it or not. You were challenged on that premise. Governor. Welcome back what do you think about the fact
that MSNBC cut into your speech to get to fact check you? Well, I think thats typical normal everyday people dont want any part of it. In fact, no mother wants to have her children be raised on the streets of Portland or Seattle right now because of the unrest because of the violence and its, not american, so we truly believe in the rule of law and it being upheld and thats the difference. Right now today, between the Republican and the Democrat parties, Brian, it is but doesnt stop MSNBC from calling up the mayor MSNBC from calling up the mayor of Seattle. Jenny Durkan here is her rebuking you her caricature of the great cities across America is not only wrong but purposely wrong. Seattle is a. It is a city that I raise my two children in and I would not have raised them
anywhere else. Brian well, right now, theyve hit their murder of total last year. Over one hundred businesses have permanently shut down from that city and they called it. The latest the latest quote, was from Seattle Shop owner who said im out of here. The violence is happening so often im getting out of town. The quote downtown Seattle is tomb, stone, Arizona. What reality is she in governor? Well, Seattle dramatically changed and I think their violent crime rate has gone up about forty four percent, since all of this has happened in the last three or four months, so maybe the Seattle she raised her children in was different years ago, but today the families that live there theyre under attack- and this is one of those things that we need to have an honest conversation about and really recognize that it comes from lack of leadership and poor leadership that has its priorities. Screwed up Brian, I know youre trying to get more people to go to South
Dakota. You did a good job selling it last night governor thanks, so much governor. You bet thanks so much Brian. I think that we are seeing incredible response to South Dakota families and businesses are moving there every day, its a wonderful place to be im thrilled to be there full time and its where my family will always live Brian. I know that the president seemed to have really loved. It seemed to have really loved it.
